17 January, 2019

Air France-KLM CEO Benjamin Smith, speaking during a French Senate public hearing published on the Senate's official website, noted (16-Jan-2019) the potential privatisation of Groupe ADP, including the potential for privatisation to lead to higher airport charges, could have a negative impact on the competitiveness of the group, leading to negative impacts for Paris and France. "My priority for the group is to make it become the strongest in Europe and one of the strongest in the world", Mr Smith said.
